Drug Education Handbook.
This handbook on drug education is divided into nine sections. Section 1, An Approach to Drug Education, proffers information and advice on such subjects as student ploys, confidentiality, and student questions about marijuana vs. alcohol. Two major ideas in this chapter are that drug education should be integrated into the total curriculum and that one should not try to teach dogmatic and categorical facts about drug abuse. Section 2, Understanding the Student, contains four essays by different authors on adolescence and the problem of drugs. Section 3 is a glossary of technical terms; Section 4, a glossary of drug jargon and slang terms. Chapter 5, Drug Information, contains material on the abuse of specific drugs and their effects. Section 6 is a brief chapter on legal aspects in drug education (federal and state statutes in general). Section 7 is a discussion of problems of abuser identification and referral. The Conclusion, Section 8, advocates full health education courses for every community and increased training of teachers as early detectors and case finders. Section 9 is a bibliography of comprehensive bibliographies, basic books and pamphlets, and films. (JA)
